I can hear spit when I play?

I've been practicing a piece which has some very quiet dynamic markings, and noticed that when I play them I can hear a lot of spit in my sound. It seems to go away when I play louder, but since most of the piece is quiet, I'm afraid that it will affect my performance. Is this spitting sound normal? And if not, how can I fix it?

    I was hearing that spitty sound from time to time too. I found an article that attributes the problem to excessive moisture in the mouthpiece, and gives some suggestions for fixing the problem. Hope this helps!
